Overall Aid and Development Strategy
After decades of underdevelopment, the inhabitants of Swaida in southern Syria face existential threats. The brutal Syrian war, the collateral damage from sanctions, and COVID-19 have impoverished families, disrupted, and increased disparities in health services, and devastated the fragile, remittance-based economy. Responding to these needs, we employ a three-pronged strategy in Swaida with a goal of expanding it across Syria:
1. Sustainable aid projects for families of victims of violence. At a cost of $250-$1000 each, our pilot water-efficient, hydroponic and animal farming projects, provide feasible and reliable sources for basic long-term household needs with a 12-months payback period.
2. Health services development program: most imminently in combating COVID-19. We will staff and equip five mobile healthcare units, partnering with local health care providers and organizations, covering underserved rural areas with in-home treatment capabilities including home-oxygen, oximeters, and medications.
3, Female-headed household program: Monthly family assistance are distributed for 1000 female-headed households across rural Swaida. Donations are open for this program using the donation link.
4, Student-employment program: more than 50 students (goal > 100) are trained and employed on a part-time basis to execute the organization projects, and build the next generation of community servants.
